Dear friends,

As you are aware, Legal Metrology Act 2009 has come into force w.e.f. 1.4.2011 (in place of Standards of Weights & Measures Act 1986 and Standards of Weights & Measures Enforcement Act 1986 which have since been repealed).

Under the new Act following action is to be taken immediately by manufacturers / packers:

- Manufacturers, packers & importers have to get themselves registered under Rule 27 of Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules 2011 on payment of fee of Rs.500 by 30.6.2011.

- Companies have to nominate one of their directors to exercise powers under the Act under Rule 29 of Legal Metrology General Rules 2011.
